Please Hold


For those of you popping by every day to see if I have continued with the story -

Believe me when I say I am not sitting here waiting for the throngs of adoring comments to come in before I continue.

I am enjoying a very rare 5 day time-off with The Man.

Being July 1st - we are celebrating Canada Day today. He managed to get the Friday and Monday off and I of course have taken complete advantage of that in as many ways as I could.


We are catching up on many outdoor projects that have needed to be done for a very long time. I believe - with any luck - that today will be the day the pool goes up. We have had no summer up until now - so now the pool. I'm so excited about this because I was beginning to dry out....


(a note on the above picture - this was taken last Canada Day 2007)

I do hope you have a wonderful break with The Man. The garden and pool look lovely too - any chance of you coming over and knocking my garden into shape?

Happy Canada day for yesterday.

Have a lovely few days (or, rather, hope you have HAD a lovely few days ...) your garden looks like a fun place to be. My boys would LOVE a trampoline like that. We've resisted so far.

Melanie said...

Hia Aims, I hope you have some lovely weather for swimming. Our children have just saved up and bought themselves a trampoline together. Hubby had a go and suddenly realised how unfit he'd become over the winter. :-)

I hope you have a wonderful break.

Hugs Melanie

Mima said...

Aims it all looks just lovely, and I hope that your pool does make it up, and that you have the weather to really enjoy it! As for having a break with The Man, I am amazed that you are even on here blogging at all. Make the most of it!

Mima said...

Completely forgot to say, there is an award over at my place for you to pick up!

aims said...

Thanks everyone. There's nothing like a little R & R to get yourself back into the swing of things.

Hi aims, just catching up and see you are on a well-deserved break. Your garden and pool look just lovely. Enjoy! M xx

Maggie May said...

Lovely pics! Hope you enjoyed your break!

John-Michael said...

Something seems to be amiss with your camera, Aims ... the terrain seems to have varying levels! Here in Florida that just ain't NATURAL! [silly grin] Absolutely lovely scenes, my Dear. I smile a smile of contented pleasure in the realization that You are ensconced in such a sweet environment.

Lovingly ...
